Leeds United have reportedly struck an agreement with French side Rennes over the transfer of Brazilian winger Raphinha.
The 23-year-old looks likely to arrive after Leeds failed to complete a deal for Michael Cuisance, Bayern Munich’s 21-year-old Frenchman.
Raphinha is now set to undergo a medical ahead of formalising a transfer. He joined Rennes last year for £18 million, with a deal worth up to £21 million believed to have been agreed this weekend, according to Sky Sports.
